Victory Bakery Reopens Where Wadiya Was
In Wadiya's place is Victory Bakery, which closed its enormous bakery-cum-restaurant on Brookhurst a month or so ago. The new Victory Bakery is still quite large and has plenty of tables, but does not serve meals--apparently they are expecting a large crowd of people to show up for coffee and knafe (pronounced "k'nah-feh"), the Palestinian dessert made up of thousands of threads of very fine phyllo pastry wrapped around sweet cheese or nuts, then soaked with rosewater-flavored syrup.
I asked the folks inside the new Victory Bakery (which started in this location many years ago) whether they intended to serve food again, and the answer was a firm negative. This is a shame--the Brookhurst location had the best yellow lentil soup I've ever had.
Victory Bakery can now be found at 949 S. Euclid St., Anaheim.
